Tenancy Deposit Scheme - Next Step Lets
The Next Step Lets scheme is operated by our Housing Advice and Homeless team to assist people wanting to access the private rented sector.
The primary objective of the scheme is to prevent homelessness throughout the borough. With Social housing in short supply, we must use other options such as private sector letting to help those in need of support.
We also offer rent and deposit loans to those who have been able to secure a private sector home on their own. This is a discretionary service offered by the Homeless and Housing advice team. If you would like to discuss eligibility contact the team.
